Jetboil releases its first remote canister stove. Does this work well enough to be a good winter stove?
By Roger Caffin
The Jetboil Helios is an inverted remote canister stove with a dedicated heat-exchanger pot. This is the first in the Jetboil range of stoves to feature a remote canister, and the canister is meant to be inverted. In fact, Jetboil provides a rather neat little tripod to hold the canister upside down, making this the first Jetboil stove to be suitable for winter use. Full kit weight is a heavy 830 g, but this can be reduced.
